Fantastic! What did you use for the black parts of the canopy, electrical tape?
Such a cool concept man, really creative!
How much does that fiberglass canopy weigh? I have been wanting to mold a composite canopy for a while now, you are really inspiring me.

The black is spray paint. I mask up the bits i want clean with bits of e tape paint it and peel off the tape then clear coat , if i feel fancy.
Its not my first rodeo , canopys like these are a lot of work ,carbon fibre twill is V V Verry hard to work and expensive compaired to glass. A tip , use small squares triangles and thin strips when laying up , it is easier to apply .
epoxy resin is strongest but stinks like ass polyester resin is more brittle and cheaper. i use poly.

I used to make molds a lot. Metal casting mostly, although sometimes for ceramics. I've been 3d printing my parts for my quads, but dreaming about making a mold for a canopy. I was thinking aluminum, or maybe I would vacuform some transparent polycarbonate, but fiberglass is looking mighty good... I wonder about other woven materials in epoxy, like maybe silk. I wonder how hard that would be... I bet it's crazy durable. What if you made a garment style canopy, and used elastic in some places, and silk in others, but only put resin on the silk parts. Might be crazy light, stretchy to take crashes, and durable where it needs to be. Mounted on some strategic pieces of nylon we might have a real aerodynamic advantage.
I have been a big fan of that skull canopy you made with the kevlar since you posted it. I kiiinda want to make one of those myself... Would you be cool with that?

Oh I absolutely dig it! I really wanna know how that flies! I am threatening to build a really big (still race\freestyle) hex over my winter break (it'll be here sooner than I want it to be). Have you even taken it in the basement\garage to see how it does getting off the ground?

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
